Staying Healthy

Staying Smoke-Free

Did you quit smoking before, during or after pregnancy?

Congratulations! Your achievement means better health for you and your baby.

If you do smoke, be aware of the risks to your own health as well as the risks of second-hand smoke to your baby.

Coping with cravings

Life after pregnancy means many new challenges. Staying smoke-free can be one of them.

Don't give in to your tobacco cravings. Instead, try healthy ways to cope with stress, such as eating well, getting enough sleep and using your social support network.

Think you might start smoking again?

If you're finding it hard to fight cravings, get free, personalized support and advice from Smoker's Helpline or call your health care provider.
